How do I know AJ Project is Legitimate? Are you a registered non Profit?
There are several ways to check on us to make sure we are legal.
Guidestar: Is officially recognized as the checker of non profit statuses. Since you can only register with Guidestar after 2 years after receiving non profit status we are registered with Guidestar since 2016. Each year we file a form 990 EZ since our funds we raise fall under the threshold for form 990.
New York state Dept. of Corporations: We are listed as AJ Project, inc
IRS: We have a non profit status listed effective August 2014
Benevity: Is a corporate giving program- only certified NPO's can participate
Pay Pal Giving Fund: Is a giving fund set up to receive donations and distributes funds to the AJ Project with 0 fees. You must be certified to be accepted into the program.
